Record Store Day

Though these days it comes twice a year thanks to shopping bonanza Black Friday, the OG celebration of the independent record store has long taken place in April. Launched in 2007, Record Store Day riles up audiophiles with a slew of limited edition releases. This year, participating locals include Willie Nelson, who reissues Phases and Stages for its 50th anniversary and presses “Long Story Short,” his star-studded 90th birthday concert from last year, into a live album. From New Jersey, the Roches’ 1979 debut receives its first US reissue in 40 years. Zooming out, Record Store Day ambassadors Paramore tap David Byrne for a split single in which the artists cover each other’s biggest hits. – Carys Anderson
